Important Safety Information

BASAGLAR Indication

BASAGLAR is a long-acting insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults and children with type 1 diabetes and adults with type 2 diabetes.

Limitation of Use: BASAGLAR is not for treating diabetic ketoacidosis.

BASAGLAR Important Safety Information

Do not take BASAGLAR® (insulin glargine injection) during episodes of low blood sugar or if you are allergic to insulin glargine or any of the ingredients in BASAGLAR.

Do NOT reuse needles or share insulin pens, even if the needle has been changed.

Before starting BASAGLAR, tell your doctor about all your medical conditions, including if you have liver or kidney problems, if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, or if you are breastfeeding or planning to breastfeed.

BASAGLAR should be taken once a day at the same time every day. Test your blood sugar levels while using insulin. Do not make any changes to your dose or type of insulin without talking to your healthcare provider. Any change of insulin should be made cautiously and only under medical supervision.

The most common side effect of insulin, including BASAGLAR, is low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), which may be serious and life threatening. Signs and symptoms may include dizziness or light-headedness, sweating, confusion, headache, blurred vision, slurred speech, shakiness, fast heartbeat, anxiety, irritability, mood change, or hunger.

Do NOT dilute or mix BASAGLAR with any other insulin or solution. It will not work as intended and you may lose blood sugar control, which could be serious. BASAGLAR must only be used if the solution is clear and colorless with no particles visible. Always make sure you have the correct insulin before each injection.

BASAGLAR may cause serious side effects that can lead to death, such as severe allergic reactions. Get emergency help if you have:

  • A rash over your whole body
  • Trouble breathing
  • A fast heartbeat
  • Sweating
  • Swelling of your face, tongue, or throat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Extreme drowsiness, dizziness, or confusion

Heart failure can occur if you are taking insulin together with medicines called TZDs (thiazolidinediones), even if you have never had heart failure or other heart problems. If you already have heart failure, it may get worse while you take TZDs with BASAGLAR. Your treatment with TZDs and BASAGLAR may need to be changed or stopped by your doctor if you have new or worsening heart failure. Tell your doctor if you have any new or worsening symptoms of heart failure, including:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Swelling of your ankles or feet
  • Sudden weight gain

Tell your doctor about all the medications you take, including over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.

While using BASAGLAR, do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you know how BASAGLAR affects you. Do not drink alcohol or use other medicines that contain alcohol.

Other possible side effects may include swelling, weight gain, low potassium, injection site reactions, including changes in fat tissue at the injection site, and allergic reactions. These are not all the possible side effects. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

The BASAGLAR KwikPen is a disposable, prefilled insulin pen. Please talk to your healthcare provider about proper injection technique and follow instructions in the Instructions for Use that accompanies the pen. BASAGLAR is available by prescription only.

Indication for Humalog U-200 KwikPen

Humalog is used to treat people with diabetes for the control of high blood sugar

Important Safety Information for Humalog U-200 KwikPen

What is the most important information I should know about Humalog?

  • Do not share your Humalog KwikPen, cartridges, reusable pen compatible with Lilly 3 mL cartridges, or syringes with other people, even if the needle has been changed. You may give other people a serious infection or get a serious infection from them.
  • Humalog 200 units/mL KwikPen contains 2 times as much insulin (200 units/mL) in 1 mL as standard insulin (100 units/mL).
  • The Humalog contained in the Humalog U-200 KwikPen should ONLY be injected with the Humalog U-200 KwikPen. Do not withdraw Humalog U-200 from the pen using a syringe. It could result in an overdose causing severe low blood sugar which may put your life in danger.
  • Do not change the insulin you use without talking to your healthcare provider. Changes may make you more likely to experience low or high blood sugar. Changes should be made cautiously under the supervision of your healthcare provider.
  • Test your blood sugar levels as your healthcare provider instructs.
  • Your insulin dose may need to change because of illness, stress, other medicines you take, change in diet, or change in physical activity or exercise.
  • When used in a pump, do not mix or dilute Humalog U-100 with any other insulin or liquid. Do not use Humalog U-200 in an insulin pump.

Who should not take Humalog?

  • Do not take Humalog if your blood sugar is too low (hypoglycemia) or if you are allergic to insulin lispro or any of the ingredients in Humalog.

Before using Humalog, what should I tell my healthcare providers?

  • About all of your medical conditions, including liver, kidney, or heart failure or other heart problems.
  • If you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding.
  • About all the medicines you take, including prescription (especially ones commonly called TZDs [thiazolidinediones]) and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.

How should I use Humalog?

  • Humalog is a rapid-acting insulin. Take Humalog within fifteen minutes before eating or right after eating a meal.
  • Always make sure you receive the correct type of Humalog from the pharmacy.
  • Do not use Humalog if it is cloudy, colored, or has solid particles or clumps in it.
  • Do not mix Humalog U-200 with any other insulin.
  • Inject Humalog under your skin (subcutaneously). Never inject into a vein or muscle. Change (rotate) your injection site with each dose. Make sure you inject the correct insulin and dose.
  • Do not re-use needles. Always use a new needle for each injection. Re-use of needles can cause you to receive the wrong dose of Humalog and result in infection.
  • Do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you know how Humalog affects you. Do not use alcohol while using Humalog.

What are the possible side effects of Humalog?

  • Severe low blood sugar can cause unconsciousness (passing out), seizures, and death. Low blood sugar is the most common side effect. There are many causes of low blood sugar, including taking too much Humalog. It is important to treat it quickly. You can treat mild to moderate low blood sugar by drinking or eating a quick source of sugar right away. Symptoms may be different for each person. Be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about low blood sugar symptoms and treatment.
  • Severe life-threatening allergic reactions (whole-body reactions) can happen. Get medical help right away if you develop a rash over your whole body, have trouble breathing, have a fast heartbeat, or are sweating.
  • Humalog can cause life-threatening low potassium in your blood (hypokalemia), which can cause severe breathing problems, irregular heartbeat, and death.
  • Serious side effects can include swelling of your hands and feet and heart failure when taking certain pills called thiazolidinediones or “TZDs” with Humalog. This may occur in some people even if they have not had heart problems before. Tell your healthcare provider if you have shortness of breath, swelling of your ankles or feet, or sudden weight gain, which may be symptoms of heart failure. Your healthcare provider may need to adjust or stop your treatment with TZDs or Humalog.
  • Failure of your insulin pump or infusion set or degradation of the insulin in the pump can cause hyperglycemia and ketoacidosis. Always carry an alternate form of insulin administration in case of pump failure. The most common side effects of Humalog include low blood sugar, allergic reactions, including reactions at your injection site, skin thickening or pits at the injection site (lipodystrophy), itching, and rash. These are not all of the possible side effects. Ask your healthcare provider for more information or for medical advice about side effects.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Humalog is available by prescription only.
